Gallery History


In 1986, the Millers opened the doors of “Kim Originals,” a custom frame shop and contemporary art gallery located in Avalon, NJ. In 1990, a second location was established in Stone Harbor.  Since that time, the gallery has broadened its vision and has become nationally known, hosting shows with such artists as Howard Behrens, Peter Max, Hessam, Aldo Luongo, Don Hatfield, Jiang and Sam Park.

Throughout the years, the gallery has experienced a substantial growth of excellence and continues to represent important national and local artists.  As a dealer to individuals and corporate collectors, Ocean Galleries promotes artists with extraordinary abilities.
